I have had this book for over ten years, I still read it regularly, though written in a simple, conversational style the power of her own experience with these eternal truths is astonishing! The message conveyed is that when we listen to our inner voice we are on the right path. Life is not a struggle, unless you make it so. There is a divine plan for everyone, and thought this may sound crazy, it is clear that we have taken birth and must have a purpose. I bought this book when I was heartbroken over a love affair, and by using the power of right thinking, I got over that, and got the right relationship for me. Good luck to all who buy this gem!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, insightful, inspirational 5 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A superb book - i could hardly put it down!...
It gave me a feeling of deep calm, like I finally understood what I was missing and what I could do to set it right.
Despite the fact that Florence is obviously a very religious lady and uses biblical references a lot - you don't have to be 'religious' to read and appreciate this book - I'm certainly not and I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars DELIGHTFUL READ 3 Jan. 2001
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I am constantly delighted by the elegance and grace with which the early and mid-20th century metaphysicians conveyed the eternal truths. People like Ralph Waldo Trine, Katherine Ponder, Raymond Charles Barker, Joseph Murphy and Frederick Bailes are still the best choice to read if you are serious about improving your life. And judging by this wonderful little book., Florence Scovel-Shinn takes pride of place amongst them. With a great economy of words, she makes her point and in simple language explains the benefits of right thinking and how to solve problems. The text is strewn with jewels in the form of uplifting statements and memorable affirmations. Amongst other topics, the laws of prosperity, nonresistance, karma and forgiveness are presented in a fresh way, with clear instructions on how to impress the subconscious. She covers everything that is really important in a book that one can read in a day. Of course, I recommend regular reading of this wonderful manual for living a life of joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little, easy to read book 7 Nov. 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a religious book with lots of good affirmations. I particularly like the emphasis of non-duality: there is only good,we just may not have seen it as that yet. I wouldn't give it to someone who wasn't happy with the concept of God.

I'm buying it to give as gifts to people who will appreciate it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for people scared of the G..O..D word 12 Sept. 2008
By H. Baar
Format:Paperback
With the recent popularity of The Secret DVD, The Power of Now book and such like self-help titles, this book (dating back to the mid 1920s) shows that people have been asking the same questions for quite some time. The author attempts to give her 'take' on how to get what you want out of your life. Very much centred around God, which is unsurprising given the era in which this book was written but persevere if you can, and how to become more prosperous by adopting the right mental attitude. You can see how this lady's book has influenced a lot of the modern authors. If you find affirmations appealing, there are a number of them throughout the book and a handy reference at the end. Very thin paperback, easily a day's read. Quite simplistic in style, almost charming.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Play The Game of Life. 31 Oct. 2011
Format:Paperback
THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN is an excellent starter kit for those who are about to embark on their Spiritual/Inner Journey, and for those who are in the infancy stages of their Journey towards enlightenment and Truth.

Given the time and era of its origination THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN is an amazing book. It proves that 'man does not change, only the technology does' - speaking of which - THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN is also availble in an e-book format on Amazon Kindle.
It is hardly suprising that such a book would have been written in the mid 1920s, as the spirit of The Titanic disaster was perhaps still in the air just the same as it still continues to demand interest, today.

It is important that you give THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN the proper respect it deserves by way of consideration of the social trends at the time - ie religion played a very large part of folk life before the 2nd World War and women were viewed as second class citizens. If you bear that in mind you can get through the religious (christian) anecdotes. If you don't observe that rule then you won't like the book and will miss the message, learning and understanding that it has for you.
I have the 1993 40th Edition which was given to me in 1994. I have never looked back since.

As a Mature Truth Student you may find THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN a little too rigid in its approach to life, but it is an easy read and one that can be qucikly referenced to look at/look up your steps as a Truth Student.

Thank You!

I was introduced to this book 15 years ago and it immediately changed my perspective on how I handle situations in my life! Put simply, they can be as simple or as difficult as you allow them to be, this book allows you the freedom to consider an easier and more thought provoking approach to how you deal with them! I wish you a wonderful read, I still can't put the book down and am eternally grateful that it found its way to me.
